Whats is FaunaDB?
Fauna provides serverless, multi-region, transactional database instances that are accessible via a cloud API. Fauna is a flexible, developer-friendly, transactional database delivered as a secure and scalable cloud API with native GraphQL. Never again worry about database provisioning, scaling, sharding, replication, or correctness.
The Fauna Query Language provides many built-in functions that can be used to query and modify a database. Functions, also known as user-defined functions (or UDFs), provide a mechanism to store and run commonly used Fauna queries.
Whether you’re building new browser-based or mobile apps, augmenting your microservices, or modernizing existing systems, Fauna gives you the capabilities and the scale that you need without the complexity.

Data residence Regions
United States, Europe. More coming soon
Region Groups provide control over where your data resides: each database, its storage, and its compute services exist in a specific geographic region. The capability makes it possible to comply with data locality legislation, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe while benefiting from Fauna’s distributed service features.
Automatic backup, replication, and correctness. It makes three replicas in the United States if your region was the USA and the same for Europe. If you didn't select any specific region then Fauna will make two replication copies in the United States and one in Europe.
